Research

As a researcher, my process is collaborative, rigorous, transparent, and adaptable. I advocate for and work closely with users. I observe and listen; and I reflect on what I see and hear using techniques like thematic analysis, conversation analysis, and discourse analysis. I communicate findings and insights to stakeholders in clear, concise terms.

My personal research projects explore scholarly communication and writing. I am especially interested in the role that interactive systems play in shaping collaborative writing practices, influence how researchers think about citations, how they engage in the practice of citing and referencing. Citation decisions are shaped by normative, social, and political factors. Thus far, I have sought to understand these factors using content and discourse analysis, interviews, ethnographic studies, and research through design.

My work has shed light on citation practices in HCI and design research, and it has appeared in top-tier venues, such as the journal Design Studies and the ACM SIGCHI conference. My paper on critical citations in Design Research Society (DRS) conference proceedings won best paper honors at the 2018 DRS conference.
